Special guest: Tony Paul of The Detroit News. You can follow Tony on Twitter at @TonyPaul1984. Also be on the lookout for the return of Tony's Hardcore Baseball show on Detroit Sports 105.1 in early 2015.
Have the Tigers plateaued under Dave Dombrowski's control?
Did the team explore making a manager change with the availability of Joe Maddon (who became the Cubs' manager on Halloween) and Ron Gardenhire?
Do the Tigers have any other options, or is Victor Martinez a must sign player despite his advancing age and demand for a four-year deal?
How will the bullpen be addressed? Is there a possibility the Tigers eat the final year of Joe Nathan's deal?
Torii Hunter is a free agent, and Andy Dirks was released by the team, only to be claimed by the Blue Jays. How will center and right be addressed?
Is David Price trade bait?
Will the 2015 Tigers remain an elite team or is it one in decline?
In the second half of the show, the guys discuss what they have been up to since the end of the Tigers' season, give their thoughts on the World Series and why ratings were down, the busy day in Tigers' news, Miguel Cabrera's surgery, Dave Dombrowski not saying much of anything during his post season presser, what direction the team's payroll is headng, and which Tigers are trade bait.
In the first BYB Podcast of the off-season, Big Al and HookSlide ask Matthew B. Mowery of The Oakland Press to conduct a post-mortem on the Detroit Tigers' disappointing 2014 season.

Special guest: Matthew B. Mowery, Detroit Tigers beat writer for The Oakland Press. Follow Matthew on Twitter at @MatthewMowery.
Mowery interview: Matt gives us an in-depth look at the life of a baseball beat writer, covers the good, bad and ugly of an up-and-down Tigers' season, how and why they were bounced so quickly from the ALDS by the Baltimore Orioles, the bullpen issues and how Dave Dombrowski has addressed it (unsuccessfully) over the years, grades out Brad Ausmus' first season as manager and how dealing with the rookie skipper was vastly different than working with the old-school Jim Leyland, and what changes the Tigers may make for 2015.
The remainder of the show Big Al and HookSlide go off on one long tangent, giving their takes on the Tigers getting swept out of the ALDS by te Orioles, Ausmus' use of the bullpen and non-use of Al Albuquerque, the possibility the team could eat Joe Nathan's contract, the availability of Ron Gardenhire, what Dombrowski may do to rebuild the outfield, how the Royals run to the ALCS feels similar to the Tigers' run in 2006, a fairly compelling ALCS compared to a utterly meh NLCS, and the state of the BYB Podcast heading into the off-season.
